Dan in Reality Life

LOS ANGELES, JULY 8, 2014 – When Daniel S. McCoy, CAS, scored the sound supervisor role for ABC’s new live results singing show, Rising Star, he knew he would need an innovative miking solution to support the performances. In addition to his tried-and-trusted d:dicate™ 4017 Shotgun Mic from DPA Microphones, McCoy also relies on his new DPA d:screet™ 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Mics with Wisycom wideband transmitters and receivers.

With behind-the-scenes competitor interviews, commentary from host Josh Groban and mentoring from the likes of Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley, Rising Star incorporates significant moments of dialogue in addition to the performances. In order to account for the show’s various ENG and reality needs, McCoy simultaneously uses the d:dicate 4017 and d:screet 4061s to give the post production team the ultimate choice in audio dynamics.

Using the d:screet 4061s with the Wisycom transmitters is a first for McCoy, a long-time enthusiast of DPA Microphones. New York-based Gotham Sound supplied the one dozen d:screets and beltpacks for Rising Star. McCoy chose the d:screet 4061 because it has a lower sensitivity and can handle 144dB SPL, which allows him to avoid distortion on the powerful singing voices. In addition, post requires vibrant-sounding mics that can be concealed, and DPA was the perfect solution.
